The Art of the Future at the Scottish National Gallery Edinburgh

What is the ‘art of the future’? In this striking exhibition young people from across Scotland deliver an imaginative and innovative response to this challenge.

Their original artworks are the outcome of a ‘mail art’ project, which got young Scots talking about the issues that are shaping their futures. The display, which mimics a mail order warehouse, includes a brave street performance about mental health, an inventive short film about the perils of social media, and an ‘unbearable teenager’. The artworks were created from materials delivered to the participants via a contemporary art ‘tool kit' in a box.

Art of the Future is part of the Year of Young People 2018.
